The USDA Hardiness Zone Map divides North America into 11 separate zones; each zone is 10°F warmer (or colder) in an average winter than the adjacent zone. If you see a hardiness zone in a catalog or plant description, chances are it refers to the USDA map. To find your USDA Hardiness Zone or use the map below.

I am a Master Gardener also, at least that's what the Utah State University ext. instructor told me when he gave me the certificate. Personally I believe I am just a master at trying to Learn anything and everything I can about growing plants and animals that Mother Nature, Mother Earth and of course Great Spirit have blessed us with! And I Love It.

Welcome to the green thumb club ha ha In early spring ,sow the seeds by sprinkling the seed evenly over surface of a four inch pot containing fine sterile seed starting soil mix. Using a spray mister, water so that the seeds make contact with the soil. Keep moist, never allowing them to dry out, until germination occurs (make take up to 21 days).Tobacco seeds require light to germinate. Do not cover seeds with soil, After the second true leaves appear, carefully transplant individuals into cell packs or pots. Transplant hardened off plants into a garden location with well drained soil after all danger of frost has passed. Tobacco prefers healthy soil in full from

Thanks Robin! I'm going to give them another shot! Tobacco plants also have a beautiful flower if someone wants to try them as just a garden plant.

Good day, I find that when starting tobacco seeds I use a start tray and keep them in doors till they reach dime size ,it takes a long time and then place in a mostly shaded area in tray till they get to be quarter size and again gently let them receive sun till they toughen up , they grow like weeds even if you cut them off at the base, they return for a second growing. Tobacco is ready when the leaves can be pulled off the stalk easily. I ordered them from victory seeds, its the closest to the original seeds from the 1800's I could find.

Also, you can start seeds in half of lemons, limes or grapefruit halfs..just scoop out the remainder of the fruit and add soil, seeds...
